10 Lessons We Learned From 250 Gym Quotes

“Everyone tells me TOO MUCH, I tell them TOO MUCH OPINION” – Ronnie Coleman

This is Ronnie at his best. Look you and me, we may never look like or go as hard as the 8 Time Mr. Olympia, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t go as hard as we can and not give a shit what anyone has to say. People will always talk negative about gym goers. But you know what, those are called haters.

Haters are a good thing because, lets be honest, have you ever met a hater that is more successful in you in what they are hating on you for. No. That is why they are pathetic and have opinions that don’t matter.

It comes down to you wanting to be the best you can be. Don’t take it to heart when people say your “obsessed” or you “spend too much time in the gym”. They are probably just worried about their boyfriend or girlfriend leaving them for you!

“Exercise in the morning, before your brain figures out what your doing”

Sometimes you gotta just go before your mind gives you all the reasons why you shouldn’t. In fact lay your gym clothes right where you first place your feet in the morning. That way you literally step right into your gym clothes. Grab the coffee or your preferred energy beverage and hit the road straight to the gym.

Your body will thank you, even though your mind was trying to sabotage you. It will be another win, early on in the day that will translate to a lot more wins throughout the day.

“Someone busier than you is working out right now.”

Lesson here, no fucking excuses my friends. Look there are 24 hours in a day and it all comes down to how we use them, or don’t use the. Make excuses to GO to the gym not avoid it. We are all busy, the fact of the matter is is that when we make it a priority we go, not matter what. In turn, the stupid shit that would occupy that hour no longer does. Creating a sense of accomplishment each at the end of the day when your buff body hits that bed.

“Losing weight is hard, being fat is hard. Pick your hard.” – Arnold Schwarzeneggar

This is an epic quote by the KING. He is right. Everything is hard. But one leaves you with regret, the other with satisfaction. I know I would rather put the work in and be satisfied then be out of shape and wishing I would have stuck to my routine. Life is hard, but we can make the most out of it by doing what is hard. The rewards are way better.

“A pound of muscle weighs the same as a pound of fat, but its much better looking”

First off we can put to bed the notion that a pound of fat somehow weighs more than a pound of muscle or vice versa. That is a friggin myth, they both weight the same! Anyways rant over. The lesson learned here is that when we tone down, we look way better. We may weigh the same or even more because on pound of  muscle OCCUPIES less space than one pound of fat does. So yeah the lesson here is to ignore the scale and go off of how you feel. Melt the fat and add the mass my friends.

“We run for the people who think they can’t” Dick Hoyt (A man who pushes his quadriplegic son in more than a thousand races. 

Look guys, how bad ass is Dick Hoyt. I included this one for us to examine because of the fact that this guy is a warrior mixed with an angel. It also shows us that there is no excuse for anyone not to workout. This man should inspire us every time we go to exercise. As well as encourage us to encourage others who think it isn’t possible to change their lives with fitness. Much respect Dick Hoyt.

“The psychological tools I’ve gained from bodybuilding will never atrophy.” – Tom Platz

This is incredibly powerful. Look we gain muscle and burn fat but that is just surface level of what working out and fitness does for us. We change psychologically. At a deeper level than just getting buff. We have more confidence and learn how to break through or weaknesses by passing up limits that we thought we had.

This translates to breaking through limits outside of the gym as well. People that hate on gym goers really don’t understand the power of a long term dedicated fitness routine. Your building life skills while building your physique!

“Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Work hard and good results will come.”

The lesson is simple here guys, don’t look for the easy way out. When has chasing quick results ever done anyone good long term. Put in the work and the results will come, plus they will STAY.

People that jump right into the mess of using enhancement drugs RIGHT AWAY aren’t ever going to respect the sport enough to stick with it long term. They will never learn the work ethic it takes to build and maintain a physique that people admire and envy!

Stay natty for as long as possible!

‘If you still look good at the end of a workout, you didn’t train hard enough.

Look the lesson here is to shut up and get to work. Don’t go to the gym to make friends, go to the gym to get the results and go make friends after. I understand it can be a social place, which friends will come by default of working out. But go there to train hard and get your goals. Leave the place looking like you need to go wash your clothes ASAP.

“I don’t do this to be healthy, I do this to get big muscles.” – Marcus Ruhl

This is great because we all have our reasons for lifting. No judgement as long as your in there grinding, then we are all family. Whatever your goal is, it is a beautiful and unique thing that is special to you. Hold onto it when times get tough and you don’t want to go to the gym.
